I'm considering purchasing a PHPStorm licence but there is one thing holding me off, and that is I can't get the remote debugging feature to work.
In my setup I have a Windows laptop that I work on, and a home linux server. The app runs on the IP 192.168.1.83, while my laptop is .81.
I start up my node app with node --debug run, and it starts with the debugger running on 5858. I don't have any IPTable rules blocking and I can easily access my app running on port 8079 in the browser. I am also able to run node-inspector on the same machine and visit it on port 8080 which works fine.
But the PHPStorm instance on my windows machine will not connect to the debugger running on .83.
